capitol, you don't want to bet your house on the outcome, but i would say that they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this congress. >> jennifer: actually 88% of republicans in congress have received a contribution from the nra at some point in their career although according to the sunlight foundation among democrats it's 11%. with long oddings of getting a ban through congress some governors are moving ahead with state-wide bans instead. governor o'malley is proposing one of these strictest in the nation. it would ban assault weapons and restrict visitor access to school, and require perspective gun owners to provide finger continues to police and undergo a thorough background check. but how much teeth can a state ban have. joining me now is katrina vanden huevel, editor and publisher of "the nation." welcome back inside "the war room"? >> thank you governor. >> jennifer: i want to talk about the strategy of this and other issues. the president's strategy on it the progressive base wants the president to push for a ban on assaul
you to that bet. it is time for you to smoke pot. he said i will. i will smoke a joint. that lasted for about a day. then the next day he had to say i'm going to have to step away from my bet. i'm not going to be able to fulfill it. his wife got really pissed at him. she said you have grandkids now and what kind of example do you think you're setting for your grandkids so he is not going to smoke marijuana as he promised in a bet. >> bill: what a wimp. >> totally wimped up. >> bill: the example you set for your grandkids is you obey the law. the law allows you to smoke pot. therefore i'm a law-abiding citizen. robert from marlboro, massachusetts. >> caller: good morning. >> bill: what do you think? >> caller: well, obviously the scouts, they go through a background check to be a scoutmaster. and i think exposing the youth to an alternative lifestyle will be a good thing. progressive and positive. you know, allowing gay men to become scoutmasters and active in the troops and -- will be a good thing. >> bill: what do you think if mississippi or missouri or tennessee still wants to hav
: you bet. tell us what it's been like for veterans coming home, to the not be able to find jobs as fast as non-veterans. >> the our counterparts over the last two years have been two to three points below that, it's been a distressing thing to come home to. we'll have veterans ready to enter the workforce. i had been in journalism for four years and i ran base newspapers. when i went out to get a job all i could find is a job hanging posters for a college university. we need to see the civilian employers recognizing the skill sets of our veterans. >> jennifer: in addition to what happened with walmart, do you think the administration's response to veteran veterans and their need to be employed has been effective. >> it's not just on the executive branch, we need congress to act and we need the civilian employers to have the buy-in. walmart is leading the way with the 100,000 job initiative and they're not just entry level but entry and management positions our veterans are truly capable and walmart will find out this is going to be an investment. >> jennifer: well, according to a workfo
bills as the president said, we're not a dead-bet country. i'm glad they finally saw the light. we need to pay our bills and move forward. there is a stronghold of 75 republican tea party members who quite frankly do listen to the tea party in many ways, and hopefully this is a signal that they too need to understand that this should not be an issue. it should not be held honestly. hostage. we should raise the debt ceiling. that's an automatic. we should move forward and talk about how we create jobs. by creating jobs we reduce the deficit. >> jennifer: i'm take taking it as an encouraging sign that the tea party can be moved by public voices. if they can be moved on the debt ceiling of all things, maybe they could be moved on guns. you wrote in the "huffington post," advocating reducing defense spending so you can spend more money and invest in the united states. the question is in the negotiations in congress over the spending do you see that happening? >> we've got to make it happen. again, it's got to be the voice of the american people that will make it happen. people don't realize
war room." >> thank you. >> thanks, governor. >> jennifer: you bet. in the 41 days since the tragedy at newtown, 41 days now, at least 1121 americans have died due to gun violence. of course, those who die are just a fraction of the victims of gun violence. 13-year-old gabriel clark of massachusetts is still recovering after being shot last friday. it's tragic that something so horrific could happen to someone so young but the circumstances are even worse. gabriel was walking to his church to attend choir practice when a car drove past him. someone from the car shot him in the stomach. the pastor said that gabriel told him even through the pain that god had saved his life. >> okay, so there's wiggle-room in the ten commandments is what you're telling me. >> she's joy behar. >> and current will let me say anything. >> only on current tv. >> jennifer: you know that every two minutes someone in the united states is sexual assaulted? the great majority of those attacks are on women. women like debra parker, who spoke before a group of congressional leaders about violence against women ac
you. >> jennifer: you bet. let me start with you clarissa what i'm -- i'm curious about the psychology what was the status for having the president back off of his own proposal and instead support the senator's proposal. >> first of all the president is still going to nevada tomorrow and delivering a speech that we all expect will have a very aggressive and forward lean on the issue of immigration. giving these senator space to come forward to these proposal is if you are motivated by real solutions we all know we need to get a deal to the president's desk. and it was important to do that. >> jennifer: yeah, i'm -- i'm glad to see that you can -- you know, set your ego aside and allow the senate to come forward with something that is by partisan, and if the president lobbed his own plan in that, who knows what would have happened. matt, are you worried that jan brewer and other border-state officials will end up vetoing, essentially these immigration measures by having to certedfy? >> yeah, i think you have hit on exactly what was the biggest troubl

-spangled banner. he said it was the bet i had ever heard it performed. i said that she proved that you can sing the star-spangled banner after all. maybe i have been wrong to say nobody could sing it and that she, you know, gave it new life and new meaning and then i hear the news she was faking it. a spokesperson for the marine band admitted they got word at the last minute they had it pre prerecorded and they got word at the last minute that she was going to use the prerecorded version, not the real version. i have to say, here is what it sounded like. it sounds pretty good. ♪ 0, say, can you see by the dawn's early light, what so proudly we hail did he twilight's last gleaming. >> now do i feel like a total schmuck? like a total idiot? i feel like actually i have been betrayed. i don't know about you. 866-65 press. this is a big deal for me. the problem is never as good as you think they are. as they seem. look at david individualder or others, you know. things are never what really they appear to be. i don't know. i believe and peter and i were up so

this further a little bit later on. so thanks, cenk, appreciate it. >> thank you. >> jennifer: you bet. today was certainly a day that progressives of every stripe cenk will not forget. and the uniqueness of the moment was not lost on the president who actually paused as he left the stage. take a look at this. ♪ >> jennifer: a brief moment the president seemed to be just taking it before getting back to the hard work at hand. joining me now is somebody who knows a lot about hard work dean obediallah is a critical comedian. and he is going to be performing in dubai this weekend? >> this saturday -- today here in new york saturday in dubai. >> jennifer: and yesterday two events at the inauguration. >> three events. one at a ball where a lot of military veterans were, and then two other events and jim messina was getting on. >> joy: dude you are milking it. >> i know. a lot of energy and a lot of happy people. >> joy: when you are performing do you turn around and look at the audience like the president just did. >> i think we should all savor moments in our lives. but was li

the parties. if i were a betting person, i would generally bet against gun control legislation in congress. >> bill: maybe that's one of the reasons why i think it is, the reason why the president stressed yesterday, made that point. he could not expect congress to act unless the american people really make such -- such an uproar that congress has to respond. that's happened before and the president calling on the american people yesterday to basically give congress a swift kick in the butt. >> yeah, again i don't dismiss the possibility that something could happen. i think that there are certain issues that have more resonance with the american public than others. >> bill: background check. >> the background checks. even if it's not exactly what the president is proposing here in terms of universal background check, perhaps there's some -- middle ground there that makes it -- i'm quoting his statistic i don't know this independently but he said 40% of guns are bought sort of through that gun show loophole. maybe there's a way to narrow that percentage. >> bill: the most important measures

: it is tuesday evening, and i bet brussels sprouts are not on your dinner plate. let's see, would you rather be getting a root canal listen together rock band nickel back, or dealing with cockroaches or would you rather be talking to a member of congress? there was a survey released by public policy polling that found that those first four all received higher favorability ratings than congress. but don't feel too bad for congress because according to ppp, congress does have higher ratings than the kardashians, north korea and meth labs. so with us now is one person we like better the kardashian welcome back to "the war room." we like you a lot more than the kardashians. you have a choice. out of those things that are polled between a root canal congress, brussels sprouts nickel back, a meth lab, north korea, kardashians, what would you rather spend time in half. >> cut them in half, drizzle them with oil. >> jennifer: you like brussels sprouts. >> they are in season. >> jennifer: are you telling me you would rather be with brussels sprouts than kim kardashian. >> bruceelbrussels sprouts with
inside "the war room." >> thank you for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. virginia is now considering a measure to arm teachers. do you think that will prevent school violence? >> no, i do not. what will prevent school violence is a measured, practical, and realistic approach. arming teachers is a concept that is rejected by most virginians, and i'll tell you why. teachers are trained to teach. police officers are trained to protect the community. it takes time and experience to develop the adjustment in a crisis situation. police officers have that training. teachers don't. you know, a couple of hours of training for a teacher to carry a firearm is one thing. a crisis situation is something else. >> jennifer: so i'm interested in this. your colleague or your a colleague in the legislation bob marshall proposed that very measure. he was in "the war room" this week and i would love for you to take a listen to what he had to say. >> if a person was trained the same way a policeman was trained or a policewoman was trained to respond as if the police were there, it would cut these things
." >> thanks for having me governor. >> jennifer: you bet. so how significant it is that governors are speaking up? >> it's quite significant these governors are speaking up. states are the laboratory of democracy, and what they can be doing in their states can be models for the rest of the country, and maybe models for congress, if congress chooses to listen. >> jennifer: chris christie said he thinks republican governors are shaping the ayen da more than the flps congress. do you think that's true? maybe on guns and other things too? >> it could very well be true on guns, but of course that's a mixed bag. you can have governors out west or in the south that would put police and armed guards at every school, and governors on the east who would go more like the rest of the country. and what we can see there is really what each state sees it's a as. but connecticut doesn't put armed guards in every school but colorado choices to do so we could see which works. >> jennifer: there is an argument for every bit of policy regardless of what the facts are. i think you'
me. >> jennifer: you bet. as with hillary clinton, i'm curious about whether your experience with congress might have inspired you a bit to consider at least running for office yourself? >> well, it was interesting dealing with congress, but what inspired me was the chance to serve in government. i -- for 17 months i was administrator of cms, i got to help advance the most important steps in american public policy and health care in my lifetime. it was just wonderful. i got to work with great staff, and it gave me a taste for what good government really can do and really whetted my appetite for it. >> jennifer: so are you going to run? >> i haven't decided yet. i'm very, very serious about this. i spent time thinking about it my family and many colleagues and state holders, i am going to continue to listen for a while and then make up my mind. it's a great time for states now. we all know the problems in washington, and states can take the lead. i think massachusetts is a terrific place to show everybody what can be done by working together. >> jennifer
. and the desire of the lines in the ground, all that kind of thing goes up. but eventually i'm betting that as when through this turmoil and name calling and alike consensus do emerge. we forget how contentious the 30s were. in the 1790s when this nation was starting, i don't think they teach it any more but hamilton versus jefferson and what they wrote about each other was vitriolic but we move forward. >> gavin: why do you think the bush words from not more successful? the promotion of a lot things, lower tax rates lower regulatory burdens, why didn't the bush--why didn't the economy take off in the decade of 2009. >> it gets to this most boring issue in the world back to the monetary and the crazy dollar destroyed nixon destroyed jimmy carter undermined george bush and none of them knew what hit them. president obama has no appreciation that the volatile dollar that the fed has done is making his task infinitely more difficult. they don't understand it. it has not been taught for decades in the schools. the eyes roll over when it comes up. who shot up lately. so by default bad thing
mcgwire. i think it's the bbwaa with the 569 ballots. i think we fail. i bet half those guys have not seen a guy in 25 years and this idea that you're in able to vote forever. there were deserving players tim raines, alan trammell. it seems like the votes are getting stupider and stupider. this is apart from steroids, which is a very complicated issue. >> john: what do you think, is there a chance we'll see their names on the ballot next year and their punishment is that they're not eligible the first year. >> people like barry bonds sammy sosa, roger clemens they'll be on the ballot next year but the storyline will be tom glavin, maddox. they will be clean players where we'll celebrate maximum god glavin, maddox and frank thomas. and i don't see how you have a hall of fame that is supposed to be a museum, mind you that doesn't have these players. it's like a museum as written by joseph stalin, they didn't exist, therefore it didn't happen. the 90s just didn't happen. well guess what, a lot of writers who are doing this voting and handing in blank ballots, they cheered on the 1990
. if they don't you can bet the democrats will use it in the the 2014 midterm. you remember in 2010 when democrats could not get the minority voters out to the polls. many came out in 2012 to help reelect the president. if the white house can do it, they want to motivate that latino-base voters and get them to come out in the polls during the mid firms and republicans need to stop that from happening. >> john: that's a good point alex. do you agree in 2014 to be on the democrat side they need moms coming out for gun control and latinos coming out for immigration reform. do you think it's a solid play? >> absolutely. and i can tell you from talking to democratic officials who are high up in the campaign establishment they're looking at ways to try to motivate some of those minority voters, women voters, get those voters who don't always come out in the mid election. the effort has begun. >> john: alex, last 30 seconds i want to close it out with you. it seems at times the president left foreign policy to secretary of state hillary clinton. george, do you see him play an extended role in f
press show," live on your radio and current tv. >> bill: hey, you bet. eliot spitzer joining us in the next segment of the show. eliot spitzer post of "viewpoint" on current tv, of course. thirty-three minutes after the hour. it is the "full court press" this wednesday morning. welcome back everybody who is just joining us. we did not go over the cliff after all. the house finally went along with the compromise bill that passed the senate early on new year's day, 2:00 am about 11:00 pm last night. president obama said he would sign the bill before he hops on air force one and went back to hawaii to join his family and round out his holiday vacation. what does this say about the united states congress? i mean the new congress has to be better than this old one. but we'll see if john boehner can survive as speaker after caving in on this deal. >> we're starting to get accounts of how this deal was made. a very interesting part of the story i think that political is reporting. harry reid and john boehner met, and john boehner greeted harry reid by saying -- h
out why they do that coming up next. >> john: so i bet you thought this was as crazy as ted nugent could get. >> i'm an extremely loving, passionate man and people who investigate me honestly without the baggage of political correctness ascertain the conclusion that i'm a damn nice guy and if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, [ bleep ] how's that sound? >> john: that's a guy who does no drugs. that's reserved compared to what sean hannity and mitt romney's bff said this week. coming up, ted nugent moves sanity to back of the bus. >> john: you know, one of the great things about the 2012 presidential election is that it presented issues to the american people where a clear contrast existed between president obama and governor romney. the issue of how women should be treated in our society while governor romney wanted them placed in binders only to be taken o down for special occasions, the president held the radical point of view they should all be treated equal toy men. the american people heard the two arguments and they seem to have made their choice but i
a tipsy tree trimmer dangled for nearly -- try saying that with tequila. >> stephanie: bet you john boehner can't say it. >> god no. >> stephanie: dangled for two hours until a battalion of firefighters rescued him. a lot more than a kitty. authorities say the man appeared to be tipsy had a half full bottle of tequila in his belt. >> and an onion. >> stephanie: i think as a public service we have to play this once a year. >> do you have feelings of inadequacy, do you suffer from shyness. do you sometimes wish you were more assertive? if you answered yes to any of these questions ask your doctor or pharmacist about tequila. tequila is the safe, natural way to feel better and more confident about yourself and your actions. tequila can help ease you out of your shyness and let you tell the world that you're ready and willing to do just about anything. you'll notice the benefits of tequila almost immediately. and with a regimen of regular doses, you can overcome any obstacles that prevent from you living the life you want to live. shyness and awkwardness will be a thing of the past and
